Welcome to the video footage portion of my Portland Gay Pride Pageant 2011 coverage. The clips aren’t the highest quality, and at times the angle is a lil off, sometimes there is a bit of shakey came due to the need to adjust the framing and/or tripod. So far all my friends have been pleased w/the footage despite its flaws (I appreciate the love guys *muah*) hopefully by next year I’ll have access to better equipment (hey, I can be optimistic can’t I).
Anyway we’ve got the Opening number ‘Busted’ performed by the 2010 Gay Prides, coverage of the Swim Wear competition (only category that wasn’t disjointed, so its the only one I got on film as I was specifically conscripted by my friend Ryval to film the step downs, so I wanted to ensure I had battery & memory card life for that), we have all four dedication performances, performed by Syrin Scities, Allie McQueen, Shannon Theology & Chance DeVelmont respectively. Last, but certainly not least, the step down videos of the Gay Prides of 2010, my friends Isaiah Tilman, Diva Debauchery, Ryval Theology Darkholme & Ecstasy Inferno *LOVE*, followed by the crowning ceremony for the new Gay Prides of 2011.
I hope you all enjoy the coverage, despite its many flaws. Despite its flaws I think we really captured the mood & atmosphere of the crowd, and that was what was most important to me. Much love to all *HUGS*
